On April 24, 1968 Johnny Cash along with June Carter and the Tennessee Three played a wild gig at The Carousel Ballroom in Haight-Ashbury. Recorded by Owsley Stanley, this never before released show serves as an incredible snapshot of a band firing on all cylinders in the heart of San Francisco's counter-culture scene.
Perhaps best known for “The Real McCoy,” McCoy Tyner released "Tender Moments" one year later in 1968. Surrounded by a bigger ensemble of seasoned horn players, Tyner shows more than just his inspired piano chops. On this record, he demonstrates his strengths as a composer and arranger, too. Plus, this particular pressing is part of Blue Note’s Tone Poet series. The Tone Poet releases are the top-of-the-line from Blue Note. They are all-analog, 180-gram audiophile vinyl reissues of classic jazz recordings.
"Yeah!!!" is the seventh studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin and a departure from her Gospel roots, moving into a more jazzy sound. Contrary to the overdubbed sounds of audience murmurs, the album was not a live album, but instead was recorded live at New York's Columbia Studios and produced by Clyde Otis. Plus, this Music On Vinyl pressing is limited to 2000 copies, and it's printed on Purple vinyl.
